VA Administrators Wallow in Frivolity as Neglected Veterans Die


Meanwhile, as neglected vets die…

Dr. Roy Marokus, who currently serves in private practice, told the Free Beacon that veterans were denied care because of a mandatory conference he attended last March.

Marokus said veterans’ appointments were cancelled so VA medical providers could attend the two-day conference. Medical providers at the VA Medical Center in Oklahoma City, where Marokus briefly worked, and providers at all other VA medical centers in the Veterans Integrated Services Network, attended the conference.

A review of the paperwork handed out during the conference showed topics included advice on how to plan a party and asked the medical staff to explore, “What Color is Your Personality?”

“Veterans waiting for appointments got pushed back for two days,” Marokus said. “In human costs, you have all these veterans. Why was that conference needed? … Many veterans had their treatments delayed for two days while their healthcare providers determined ‘what color’ their personalities were.”

That’s why you don’t want the sort of liberal kooks who run the government also running healthcare.

Another veteran took issue with the filming of the TV show Grey’s Anatomy, which takes place at the Sepulveda VA Ambulatory Care Center. The filming encompasses the entire second floor of the facility.

Veterans who need care are limited to the first floor of the facility. …

A recent audit showed the VA Center in Sepulveda is now one of the 81 sites that “requires further review.” Scheduling issues and access were cited in the audit.

But at least the VA bureaucrats can get autographs from their favorite TV actors.

As for the vets, they get the three D’s: “deny, delay, deceased.”
